My favorite part is when Harry opens the chamber because he finds Lord Voldemort plus a basalisk. A basalisk is a giant snake that has been terrorizing Harry through the pipes of the school saying things like, “Rip, tear, shred…” and “Let me kill. I am hungry for blood.” But the basalisk could only speak in parseltongue. And Harry just happens to share the talent of speaking parseltongue with Lord Voldemort himself.
I liked Harry, Ron, and Hermione because they all have strong feelings for each other. Ron and Hermione sometimes get into fights with each other. They sometimes don’t talk to each other for days, but they always forgive each other after a while.
I absolutely adore the illustrations by Mary Grandpre. They are beautiful, even though they don’t have color. She must have taken a day to do each one!
I LOVE this book and I like how the books get better and better and better with each one you read. I recommend this book to any reader who can read very well.
